It was a picture-perfect day to be at the beach Saturday, June 30, but for several locals it wasn’t about relaxing under the sun. About a dozen volunteers took two hours out of their morning to clean up Children’s Pool beach, an effort organized by the San Diego Council of Divers and the Friends of the Children’s Pool.

“This is an event that we do in the summer,” said Kenneth Hunrichs, president of the Friends of the Children’s Pool. “This one is important because the Fourth of July holiday is coming up and there will be hundreds of people here enjoying the fireworks.”

If you missed out on the cleanup last week, there are three more scheduled this summer. For more information, go to sddivers.com
